My reading comprehension is declining. Because I only now noticed that
the comment at the top of this file states the license is LGPL v2 or
later (note the L).

Grepping the tree for "Library General" gave over 100 hits, a few of
them even in drivers/, so I suppose LPGL v2 is fine for the kernel. It
_feels_ a bit odd to use it for a driver, but that might just be me.
